RE: [teacherartexchange] drywall texture/paint


Date: Tue Dec 06 2005 - 07:08:47 PST

In my class we do a relief with matt boards, toilet paper, drywall paste
glue, etc. we cover it with gesso or acrylic primer and the use acrylic
paint. It is then antique with oil paint. very interesting results.
